It starts with being very clear on the reason WHY you are doing your business. This must be so compelling and powerful for you that it will see you through any and all obstacles. There is a great saying, “Your Why should make you cry.”

The next step is to get clear on your fears concerning your business. Most of us have them and the key to success isn’t so much in getting over the fear, but in having the courage to power through despite the fear.

Imagine the first time someone jumps out of an airplane; do you think there is fear?  Absolutely. But what gets the person to jump is the courage to do it, with faith that the experience will be great. You will have fears; especially in the beginning. Expect it and move through and beyond them. This simply takes courage!

Developing your skill set is the next piece in being prepared; this is a process and takes time. Most of us come from an employee background and have an employee mindset. That’s okay. It takes time to understand the mindset of a business owner; understanding the concept of not keeping all your profits to spend, but reinvesting a portion back into your business. A very important skill set is learning how to communicate with people; how to ask probing questions; how to be a great listener and problem solver; how to commit to doing tasks you may not enjoy. These are learned skills and so if you are struggling with them now, that’s okay.

Finally, become unstoppable in pursuit of your dreams! If anyone else has achieved success with your company or product, then you can, too. Yes, you can. Make the decision and go for it! No one else is responsible for your success or failure! Choose
which one you want to be known for!

FOCUS Leads To Your Success

FOCUS Leads To Success

Imagine that you get into your car to drive to the store. You get in, make sure you have enough gas and that the tires are all good. You cautiously back out of your driveway and start driving.

While you are driving you turn on the radio and hear your favorite song and start jamming out. Then you get a text message and of course you know it’s not safe to check it but you do it anyway. Then your brother calls you wanting to talk about the plans for next Saturday. You don’t have a headset¬†on so you are driving one handed right now.

Then someone cuts you off and you have to swerve around them to avoid an accident. JERK! You feel like yelling at them but you hold your temper….but you continue with your phone call…then you get another call and you tell him to hold on…this time it’s your friend giving you the latest gossip on what is happening at her work!

The song changes and you hate it….so you start fumbling for the controls to switch the station…then you remember your brother was on the other line.

As you do all of this…you didn’t even notice that you missed your exit for the store about 2 miles back! You get ready to turn around and realize that you have a flat tire and you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere!

Has that ever happened to you? You had every intention to get to your destination but ended up missing it and ended up someplace else?

In almost all cases you lacked FOCUS.

Let’s take the example and look at your home business.

Are you where you want to be? Have you reached all your goals or do you feel like you are spinning your wheels?

Perhaps you lack FOCUS! Don’t worry this happens to all of us.

Here are 5 things you can do to make sure you FOCUS on your home business:

1. Schedule 1 to 2 hours every day to work on your business. If you don’t schedule it…most likely it won’t happen. You may have to sacrifice things like TV time and other time wasters to make it happen.

2. Work on your business the same time every day. This way you get into a habit and it will become easier for you to make it happen.

3. Have a daily “Method Of Operation” so you know exactly what you are supposed to be working on. For example, Writing a blog post, submitting it to social media sites, Inviting people to check out your opportunity, Following-up with prospects. Get very specific on what you will be doing. Create a checklist so you can track your progress.

4. Close out the distractions! If you use Facebook as part of your marketing…do your tasks and then CLOSE it. Same with your email. Focus on the one task and then close it down so you are not tempted to get into time-wasting activities. Instant messaging with your friends, watching cat videos on Youtube and just general web surfing doesn’t do anything for your business.

5. Focus on the RIGHT activities that will bring you sales! If it’s not something that will eventually bring you or your team new customers, recruits and sales it’s not worth doing. Organizing your desk, Trying to create your own training or system (if you already have one) is not a productive activity. If you have a marketing system to follow you should be introducing people to it and teaching others to do the same. Focus on the income producing activities.

Lack of focus is one of the top reasons people fail at their home business.

Take action and FOCUS and you WILL have SUCCESS!
